On the air for thirty five years,

Soul Train

was an American music and dance television programme

which spotlighted Black-American music talents.

It was created by trailblazing producer, Don Cornelius.

From the show’s inception in 1971,

the Soul Train Line

 was probably the most popular segment of the hour-long programme-

dancers executed the latest moves in the latest fashion.

It was a ’70s music and fashion parade.

The Soul Train line consisted of two rows of dancers:

guys on one side, gals on the other and a space between.

In couples, they progressed in consecutive order-

performing their best steps to the best tunes

on the airwaves.
